Queer Scholars of Color Mentoring Workshop

Friday, April 13, 2018
9:00 - 11:30 a.m.
New York, NY

SUMMARY: All who identify as queer (LGBTIQ) scholars of color in the field of education, especially emerging scholars (graduate students, recent graduates, junior faculty), are invited to this rare opportunity to build community and learn together. Scheduled in NYC immediately before the 2018 AERA Annual Meeting, this workshop will be facilitated by Dr. Kevin Kumashiro, who will share tips for publishing, navigating the academy, and situating our work in larger social movements for justice. Please note that this workshop is exclusively for queer scholars of color, and therefore we ask our allies to support us by honoring this time and space as one for only queer scholars of color.

LOCATION: The workshop will be hosted by Hunter College CUNY. The exact location will be emailed to registered participants. Participants are responsible for their own transportation to and from the workshop.

REGISTRATION: Advance online registration is required, and includes access to the entire workshop. Space is limited so early registration is encouraged. Individuals with limited financial resources are welcome to select the “Discounted" registration rate, which entails the same workshop experience but for a lower fee. (Registration has closed.)

WHAT TO BRING: The workshop will be as “green” as possible, so no handouts should be expected. Participants are welcome to bring laptops for notetaking, and their own beverages/snacks.

PAYMENTS: All payments must be submitted at the time of registration, and are non-refundable. Participants may arrive late or leave early, which does not change the registration fees.
